* The Team Attacks of the ''{{Suikoden}}'' series, that are not CombinationAttack call upon the various interpersonal relationships between the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters -- be it [[ThePowerOfLove love]], loyalty, family, TrueCompanions, [[ThePowerOfFriendship friendship]], [[TheLancer camaraderie]], or even [[TheRival rivalry]]. For the most part, this results in attacks that are significantly stronger than the sum of their parts... though [[AwesomeButImpractical not always]].

*** In fact, the variation used to kill 13 is utilized by (Future) Trunks to kill (the physical form of) Merged Zamasu in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.

* In the [[Literature/{{Foundation}} Foundations Edge]] story by Issac Asimov, the Second Foundation creates a linkage of all of their mentallics to counter a new threat. [[spoiler:The telepathic planet blocks the link to the connection.]]

* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' is pretty fond of this. The two main instances are at the end of Yellow saga, where [[spoiler:Yellow somehow absorbs the attacks of the Kanto starters into her hand to power up Pika's Megavolt]], and the end of the Emerald arc, where [[spoiler:the nine starters each fire an Elemental Hyper Beam at the fake Kyogre, with two Pikachu and their Pichu child finish it off with a flying triple Volt Tackle]].

* During the climax of the ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X/Y]]'' arc of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, Lysandre unleashes a Zygarde-like entity known as the Giant Rock and plans to have it collide with the Sundial in Anistar City, thus releasing enough Primal energy [[note]]"Primal" as in [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Primal Reversion]][[/note]] to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt annihilate all life on the planet]]. In order to stop Lysandre, Ash teams up with not only [[TheRival Alain]], Professor Sycamore, and [[HeelFaceTurn the recently reformed]] Team Flare member Malva, but also Kalos Champion Diantha, all eight of the Kalos Gym Leaders, and Hoenn Champion Steven Stone. This assembled group proceeds to [[YouShallNotPass draw a line in the sand]] and commands their strongest Pokémon to attack with their strongest moves, which proceed to {{converg|ingStreamWeapon}}e upon the monolith. [[NoSell It's not very effective]], so the heroes turn to Plan B: disabling the Giant Rock by buying Ash and Alain enough time to infiltrate it and remove its power source, [[PoweredByAForsakenChild Mairin's Chespie]].

* In the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate Galactus]] mini-series, [[spoiler: Jean Grey and Professor X, combining their power with an enhanced version of Cerebro, link every human on the planet to beam thoughts of living at Galactus until it got scared off. Well, vaporizing 30% of it by ''shooting a goddamn Big Bang at it'' helped too.]]

A common subtext to the trope is that the worst villains are inevitably weaker because they don't have friends to rely on (see ThePowerOfFriendship). It's also a handy way of showing that the hero is very strong without nullifying the importance of the other cast members. Often combined with GondorCallsForAid, when the main group needs more energy than they themselves can generate. May be fueled by {{Innocent Bystander}}s. May include the PowerOfTrust and/or ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve. See also ICantDoThisByMyself.

*** Cell also has the Spirit Bomb in ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse''; when he throws it, he shouts "[[LampshadeHanging See? I told you I could do it!]]"

* The Genki Dama[=/=]Spirit Bomb in ''Manga/DragonBall'', which is powered by living things lending their energy to a good heart, is the former TropeNamer. This evolves throughout the series. The first time it's used, it's just the planet's power itself. The second time, it draws on the power of other planets and moons nearby. The third time, everybody on Earth sent power, only to be outdone by the final time, where ''[[GondorCallsForAid everybody he'd met across the universe]]'' helped. It should be noted that despite all the trouble involved in using it, until the very end of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' the Spirit Bomb [[TheWorfBarrage never actually works]].

** In ''Dragon Ball Xenoverse'', the better ending (obtained if the player defeats the FinalBoss before Goku teleports in to help) shows the [[PlayerCharacter Time Patroller]] getting Spirit Bomb-like energy donations from ghostly images of Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo and Krillin and using them to launch a massive [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]] that vaporizes Demigra.
